Jesus gave up his freedom
completely to the will of God,
and in doing so opened himself up
to the fullness of the indwelling Spirit -
something we only experience as a shadow,
perhaps because we do not follow his example.
Such sublimation is the supreme risk
built on uncertainty, on faith and on trust,
and the supreme sacrifice of a life for others,
that the Kingdom of God might be reflected in our lives
and impact the lives of those around us.
This is a call to action on behalf of those without resources;
the disabled, disheartened; those trapped in poverty or slavery,
those dominated by others.
This is a call to address their non-material needs,
to address the pain of those who can not forgive themselves,
or whose lives have lost all meaning.
This is a call to free ourselves,from whatever limits us;
to acknowledge the barriers and allow ourselves to go through;
to recognise the barriers of others and help to break them down;
maybe freeing ourselves to be what we could be.
